Calico heavens and razorblade hells
talking blue dogs and red wine from wells –
They’re all just ideas that are fashioned in mind –
never laid bare since there’s nothing to find!
Cheese for the mice is a life after life
a harp and some wings and an end to all strife –
pie in the sky for the dumb and the fearful
the witless – perennially, congenitally – cheerful !
What they don’t see is fantasy pipes the same tune
for those who see dragons and howl at the moon.
